IBM Systems Magazine, Mainframe digital edition - May/June 2009 - 8

Editor’s Desk Inside this month’s issue High-Flying Security O n my way to the SH A R E conference in Austin, Texas, I went through a slew of activities, all in the name of airport security. On the first flight, my carry-on bag was checked at the door of the airplane since there was no room in the overhead storage compartments. When I arrived at my layover destination, I had to go outside of airport security to the baggage-claim area to get my luggage. I then went back through security to board my next flight, even though I hadn’t been more than 50 yards from the airport-security gate. As I was removing my shoes and unpacking my laptop for the second time that day, I couldn’t help but think back to when you could bring a pocketknife on board an airplane, as long as it fit in the palm of your hand. Oh how things have changed; now you can’t even bring more than three ounces of liquid past security. Although I’m complaining quite a bit, I realize all these hoops are better than the alternative: driving thousands of miles or being the victim of a security breach. These airport policies are in place for one reason—our own safety. Providing a secure virtual environment is more important than ever as companies worldwide turn to virtualization to reduce IT costs. This issue of the magazine is all about business security and resiliency. In this issue’s cover story on page 32 you can read how IBM continues to protect your virtual resources with z/VM* offerings for mainframes. IBM recently announced a new way of thinking about IT environments that utilizes end-to-end solutions that reduce cost, manage risk and improve service. Read how you can implement a Dynamic Infrastructure* on your System z* server on page 40. In this issue’s case study, you’ll see how the City and County of Honolulu used both Systems z and System p* servers to create a dynamic IT environment. The article begins on page 28. ibms ystemsmag .com/mai nframe Us i n g r ole s to c ont r ol e mploy e e ac c e s s to information systems has become a best practice for data-center security. Managing the roles and associated trusted context can be just as complicated and time consuming as going t hrough air por t security. Turn to page 48 for information on how to ease the cost of compliance with DB2* software. Obta i n i ng a sec u re a i r por t requ i res a l it t le work , but t he div idends are inva luable. I BM’s security offerings for mainframes aim to be easy to implement and are just as priceless.
